Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Someone's been smoking the wacky tobaccy.


You looking at me?

By getting free tickets to see the last (or 3rd- however you see it) enstallment of the Star Wars movies, I was rushing all day yesterday trying to get shit done. Then Nicole didn't know how to get there, so we were almost late. Good thing for 15 minute previews. Anyway, here's my take on the movie. Note: If you haven't seen this yet, close your eyes, but scroll carefully.

1. About 25 minutes too long. Maybe I was just tired (which I was) from working 10-11 hour days this week, but the first half of the movie I noticed I was dozing off every now and then. Since I knew I had to go back to work, I was trying to get some sugar in me. Here comes the sour patch kids and reeses. I've missed you so. Anyhoo, I'm sick of these trilogy's taking so much of my time when they could be an hour and 45 minutes and the story would have been the same, but better. This was one of those cases.

2. The ending was actually good. The scene with vader's surgery, where we get to see him take his first breath was silly but still amazing. I sorta wanted to see Yoda get dumped off in the swamps, rather than the two randoms smiling at the dualing moons at the end (luke's aunt and uncle). I mean why should they get the last credit? Still I understand Lucas motives behind it.

3. Where was Harrison Ford? They should have had him in the delivery room next door to luke and leia. Then had a baby swamping mishap. How awesome and fucked up would that have been?

4. For my favorite scene: It's a toss up. I loved the shot of darth vader, where he's lying down doing the breathing thing (see number 2). You can tell Lucas was doing some directing magic there. He probably had a boner just filming that shot. My second is a more humoric (yes, i made that up) scene, where Yoda comes in to see the channcelor towards the end of the film. As Yoda walks in, he immediately kills two soldiers, almost like, "What bitch. You're in my way" kinda hand manuevering. I almost lost my shit.

And that concludes my Star Wars critique. I'm not a huge fan, so please don't critique my critique.

As in other news, I'll be seeing The Decemberists today. And since it's a spectacular, sunny day and I'm at the studio, we decided to go outside for lunch (FOR FREE!!!!) and maybe even play a little frisbee if time permits.

Here, the weekend is finally. (sorry, i had to do it. the force made me.)

My favorite part of the movie was watching Anakin's descent into darkness...

Pizza is cool.
But "The Others" sucked. I liked it better when it was called Beetlejuice, or no, I mean the "6th Sense". Yeah, that's it.

Oh, I'm The Brad.
